_that_'s the reason why it is so slow. A working copy on a shared drive
always is slow, no matter if you have the overlay icons activated or not.
When you right-click on a file/folder, TSVN has to fetch the Subversion
status of that item. If the item is in a working copy, then fetching the
status always causes a lot of disk access (parsing files in the .svn
folder, comparing the selected item with its base, ...).

But why do you have a working copy on a network share? Subversion is a
version control system, which means you have a _working copy_ to work
on. And that working copy can be anywhere you like, you don't have to
make a backup of it or have it on a network share so you can use it from
other computers too - just check out another working copy wherever you
need one!

Don't use a working copy on a network share, use your local harddrive to
store the working copy.
